Abstract: Passport is the most important document while travelling from one country to another. It is the proof of citizenship of the country. Hence, it needs to keep it secure from unauthorized use. Authentication and security of passport and checking integrity of a person on the airport is a challenging task. In order to face this challenge of security and privacy, we propose a method based on Visual Secret Sharing (VSS) for black and white passport number. In our proposed method we have a new approach in VSS with improved contrast. Two shares of a passport number image are formed by applying 2-out-of-2 VSS. Shares generated will contain only black and white pixels, which make it difficult to retrieve any information about the image by viewing only one share. However, when the two shares are overlaid the secret image is retrieved.
